Whenever possible, we buy our ingredients from local suppliers within Staffordshire & Derbyshire. Allowing us to support our local community, reduce our environmental impact and ensure the quality of our ingredients are consistently high.

We’re temporarily closed to support the fight against Covid-19.

Dimmingsdale remains open for local exercise only, once a day. All facilities are closed.

We’ll see you soon! Stay safe, stay local.

Nestled in Dimmingsdale in the beautiful Churnet Valley is the Ramblers Retreat, a family-run Country Tearoom.

Since 1981, our family has offered a range of traditional, homemade meals and snacks to visitors to this beautiful valley. Whether you choose to eat in our cosy snug, airy conservatory or our beautiful woodland gardens, we guarantee you’ll find the atmosphere extremely homely, warm and welcoming.

And as well as enjoying a delicious meal, you can also take in the beauty and tranquillity of Dimmingsdale by strolling through the valley using one of the established woodland walks.
